Paint thickly evenly over the claws before painting the nail color. It is not uniform even after painting, it gets consistent with time. If you paint two or maybe three times again, it gets very easy to peel as the thickness is released with the film. The counter is dry. Paint the nail color from. How to use: Peel the first layer of the reduced aspect (the cuticle side) of the claw with a claw plus gently toward the fingertip.
